Tip & How-To about NetGear WGT624 Wireless Router

Continuously losing internet service but logged onto router

Less than one month after installing my new wgt624 I began experiencing the problem. It was always trying to identify my network. Netgear tech support was useful once, alas it was back to rip my hair out the next day. After going round and round with their FOREIGN techs, who knew nothing more than how to read a 1 through 10 list of things that could be wrong, I was told that my router was defective and I had to pay to send it back to them to be replaced. After being lied to for over two weeks I was not going to trust them to be honest at this point. A very intelligent geek friend of mine asked for it ,since it was useless to me anyway, to flash it and make a repeater, well he actually found the problem. DO NOT turn on the automatic update feature on the router. It works on the third firmware upgrade, yet it will automatically download the fourth version, which will block the router up like the Berlin Wall. When you go on the update website it even tells you not to use version four on your wgt624. It turned out to be a simple fix that the entire Cisco foreign legion could not figure out but one coonass from south Louisiana picked up on in one hour.

Good luck users

I am installing a new printer and it is asking me for the wgp passphrase....will it be wgps606? I have a netgear super G wireless Router WGT624


The network passphrase/encryption key is in the Netgear wireless settings.
These settings eg. SSID and encryption key is used to configure the wireless card in the printer or computer so it can connect to the wireless router.

Things You'll Need:
  • Ethernet cable
  • Cable or DSL modem
  • WGT624 Installation CD
  1. 1 Plug the Netgear WGT624's AC adapter into a wall outlet. Plug an Ethernet cable into the yellow Ethernet port on the back of the Netgear router. Attach the other end of the cable to the Ethernet port on the back of your modem.
  2. 2 Insert the installation CD that was included with the Netgear WGT624 into your computer's disc drive. Click the language option you want to use and then click "Setup."

  4. 4 Type "admin" in the Netgear's "User Name" text box and then enter "Password" in the text box labeled "Password." Click "OK."
  5. 5 Click "Yes" and wait for the latest firmware upgrade to install. Double-click the upgrade file and follow the onscreen instructions to install the upgrade.

I CONNECTED A NETGEAR WIRELESS ROUTER WGT624 TO MY VERIZON WESTELL MODEL 1600 AND IT WORK SOMETIMES BUT I ALWAYS GET DISCONNECTED MY SON ALSO HAS HIS XBOX360 LIVE CONNECTED AND CONTINUALLY GET KNOCKED OFF LINE WHILE PLAYING


You may need to upgrade your Router Firmware. Try going to the Netgear site http://kb.netgear.com/app/products/family/a_id/1297 and select your exact model. Version number is located on the sticker under the Router. Under the downloads section of your model, is a Firmware download. Download the latest version for installation. BE SURE that you connect your computer and router with a Network cable when upgrading the Firmware. DO NOT upgrade firmware over Wireless connection of you could fry the device. To login into the router console click http://192.168.0.1 and enter admin as the username, and password as the password. You will see an upgrade firmware section, point to the new Firmware file you have downloaded and follow the on screen prompts. You will need to setup your SSID and Encryption Password after the upgrade. Netgear Support will walk you through this these steps if you are uncomfortable performing them.

LAP TOP CAN NOT GET ON INTERNET. NETGEAR WGT624.


1.) Check if you put static ip on your NIC. If not, then you are DHCP.

2.) Do some Command Line Interface at CMD.

a.) Start > Run > CMD
b.) ipconfig /all
d.) Try to release the ip by typing this command: ipconfig /release
c.) Then, renew : ipconfig /renew

try to flush your dns, by typing these:

ipconfig /flushdns

and register again your dns by typing these:

ipconfig /registerdns

If this solution does not correct your problem, try to reset your Netgear, by the way, do you put WPA on your wireless network?
